The American Indian reader : history by Rupert Costo( Book )

7 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an attempt to rewrite American history incorporating "long hidden facts" pertinent to the American Indian, this book endeavors to relate the "truth in history" and make "humanity see itself face to face without fear and in spite of the pangs of conscience". Each of 7 chapters addresses a specific aspect of American history relevant to the American Indian; they are titled as follows: (1) "Before the Invasion" (history of the Native American prior to European "invasion"); (2) "The Barbarians" (Native sophistication as opposed to European barbarism); (3)"Cultures and Conflict" (difference between Native American and European philosophy, with particular reference to land); (4) "The Treaty Era" (with U.S. land acquisition constituting the impetus behind the making and breaking of treaties, reference is made to treaties with the Iroquois, Delawares, Nez Perces, and Sioux); (5) "Extermination Through Legislation" (the "dispossessing, expropriating, and extinguishing" of Indian title to their lands, with emphasis on Indian Allotments prior to the Dawes Act); (6) "Presidents of the U.S. in American History" (the presidential role); "a Chronology of American Indian History" (annotated dates from 1494 to the end of the 19th century).

Textbooks and the American Indian by Rupert Costo( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An independent Indian publishing house has been formed to provide classroom instructional materials which deal accurately with the history, culture, and role of the American Indian. This book is a preliminary statement in that publishing program. General criteria, valid for instructional materials from elementary through high school, are applied to textbooks approved for use by Bureau of Indian Affairs schools, public schools, or both. Evaluations written by Indian scholars, historians, or experts in some aspect of Indian culture and history point up inaccuracies and bias in relation to the American Indian. Evaluations are presented for textbooks used to teach American history, state and regional history, government and citizenship, American Indian culture, world history, and reading. A bibliography is included for use by the teacher, the interested scholar, or the upper grade student to develop an understanding of the American Indian in the culture and history of the United States.

The American Indian reader : book ... of a series in educational perspectives by Rupert Costo( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today self-determination, economy, tribal jurisdiction, taxation, water and resource rights, and other aspects of American Indian affairs are affected by issues raised through the treaties and agreements made with Indian nations and tribes, and through the executive orders and statutes. Government policy has been influenced by the pressure brought to bear on the federal government by the states, settlers, gold miners, corporations, large landowners, and the majority population. With the opening of the 1970's, a national anti-Indian movement has been organized. Tribes have provided documented evidence of violations of the trust responsibility and obligations of the federal government to the American Indian Policy Review Commission which was established in 1975. Data were provided in quantity fully sufficient to support the final recommendations made by the Commission in its Report. Of the Commission's 11 members, only Representative Lloyd Meeds dissented from the Report and Recommendations. Today the Indian nations are bringing their forces together in order to protect their rights. This publication presents a discussion of the Indian treaties and how they affect Indian affairs, treaties as the "supreme law of the land", and the Meeds dissent; an overview of tribes today; and a discussion of solutions. Appended are a report of the establishment of the American Indian Policy Review Commission; a chronology of Indian treaties, agreements, and major laws which apply to all tribes; and the Council of State Governments resolution on the American Indian Policy Review Commission.

Indian Voices The First Convocation of American Indian Scholars by Rupert Costo( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The document reports on The First Convocation of American Indian Scholars, which was attended by professional people, artists, traditional historians, etc. As noted, the 4-day convocation was conceived, organized, and directed entirely by Native Americans and was limited to 200 participants, among whom were 36 Native American students. The document is a record of the assembly presentation, papers given at panels, and discussions held at the convocation only, since a comprehensive report of the proceedings would have been too voluminous. As stated, the aims of the convocation were to form a solid basis for educational accomplishment and to unite the scholarly forces on behalf of Native Americans. Among the 15 papers included in the report are (1) American Indian Philosophy and Its Relation to the Modern World, (2) Implications of the 1968 Civil Rights Act in Tribal Autonomy, (3) The American Indian in American History, (4) Native American Studies Programs: Review and Evaluation, (5) Native Arts in America, (6) Modern Psychology and Child Development: The American Indian Case, and (7) Red Power: Real or Potential. The document concludes with a list of convocation participants. (El)
Teaching the Role of the Indian in American History and Upgrading Curricula. a Position Paper by Rupert Costo( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Presented in this document is a discussion of the need for an ongoing evaluation of the accuracy and adequacy of materials pertaining to American Indians in textbooks and reference books in use, or being produced for use, in the nation's schools. During this ongoing evaluation, to be done by a recognized permanent national committee of Indian scholars, the committee should work closely with textbook authors and publishers in preparation of all instructional materials about Indians intended for general as well as for local use, and the findings should be disseminated widely. Also, it is recommended that college courses such as The American Indian and Early European Contact, The American Indian in American History, The American Indian in American Life, and The Literary Heritage of the American Indian be developed.
